A staff of St Mary’s Boys Senior High School (SHS) has lost almost all his front teeth after a clash ensued between them and Ghana Secondary Technical School (GSTS), The clash which happened on Tuesday, July 26, was after St Mary’s defeated GSTS in the final of the Inter Schools Basket Ball competition on the latter’s campus.
Mr Felix Ankrah, the Senior House Master of St Mary’s speaking to Skyy News explained that as his students were jubilating during the victory, students of the rival school allegedly started to pelt stones and sachet water at them. “When we won, we were jubilating when we saw people throwing water at us, we thought the water was a normal thing but later turned into stones”. “I saw one of our staff was down from the effect of the stone so I had to stop everything and rush him to the hospital, he lost almost all his front teeth, it’s terrible.”
He revealed that two of his students were arrested by some staff of GSTS alleging that they were seen throwing stones. “They were kept in the staff room but we said that place is not a police station, you know when you pick a student, other students will start asking questions and bouncing back, that also escalated most of the things.” The two students who were arrested were handed over to the police.
A student of GSTS also sustained a deep cut on his forehead during the clash. Mr Ankrah indicated that GSTS had their bus damaged and two of theirs damaged as well. He indicated that there was no security from the beginning of the event till the incident happened during the final game, he urged the organisers to do better by providing security in the next events.
